A one-to-one session with David, Carolyn and young Skye the golden retriever.
Skye had developed an expectation of physical interaction with every dog she met in the park. Her focus was purely on other dogs and she would often sprint off far into the distance to see them with no recall.
Skye was a quick learner but sometimes quick learners can also develop bad habits quickly to.
We demonstrated new ways of teaching Skye to meet and greet dogs positively and politely.
We worked on the importance of getting our body language and energy right and consistent.
Then we went on to condition Skye to believe we were fun and confident and worthy of following.
We went on to practice recall around distraction and before you knew it she was happy to ignore other dogs and hang around with us.
Great session with a happy wee dog.
